Other Notes
Georgia is grown on a three acre, dry-farmed estate vineyard in Yountville. This exquisite, Graves-style (dry white Bordeaux) Sauvignon Blanc is fermented and aged 100% new French oak barrels for eighteen months. It displays unprecedented depth and complexity, amazing texture, and a long lingering finish. Lail Vineyards was the first winery in the New World to produce a Sauvignon Blanc in this complex and captivating style, beginning with the 2002 vintage. The proprietary name celebrates the first member of the sixth generation of our family's winemaking in Napa Valley, Georgia Eileen. It has been called by a leading wine writer "...California's most complex and multi-dimensional Sauvignon Blanc."

WINEMAKER NOTES

"2016 in Napa Valley provided perfect growing conditions for the Sauvignon Grape, and our Georgia brilliantly reflects this. Its aromatics explode with jasmine, white truffle, pear, white peach and brioche, with intense flavors adding melon, nectarine and tangerine. The texture is creamy and rich, with a lingering finish that goes on for minutes. This is classic Georgia...it simply has it all!"  - Philippe Melka, Winemaker

95 Points

"The 2016 Georgia Sauvignon Blanc comes 100% from Totem Vineyard in Yountville and is fermented and aged 18 months in 100% French oak. It leaps from the glass with notions of ripe peaches, fresh pears, pineapple and guava touches of chalk dust, white pepper, dill seed and honeysuckle. Medium to full-bodied, it completely coats the palate with tropical fruits and spicy layers, lifted with a zippy line of acidity and finishing long and minerally. Give it another year or two in bottle and drink it over the next 8-10 years." —Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate

 

94 Points

"The 2016 Sauvignon Blanc Georgia is just as impressive from bottle as it was from barrel. Lemon confit, chamomille, dried flowers, mint and apricot are nicely framed by a touch of new French oak. Racy and voluptuous in the glass, with terrific presence, the 2016 is positively stellar. Ample, creamy and super-expressive, the 2016 Georgia is superb today." —Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media
